Medication used to treat the most common form of childhood leukemia is in short supply, adding to the largest nationwide shortage of critical lifesaving hospital medications in nearly a decade.

I get that older drugs turn generic and aren't the cash cows they were in days gone by.
Drug companies deserve to make some profit but the question becomes "how much" when weighed against children who could absolutely survive leukemia. If the mark up was only 10 percent it would be justified from a humanitarian aspect. Anyone making a ten percent profit on their lower end products is probably doing well especially considering how many drugs are high end.
If you don't produce drugs that will save children, and take the same approach with other drugs taken in the world population, you will end up with a reduced population buying drugs anyway.

This is just so sad for the kids. I hope something can be done. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#ktik for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.
